    fde101 reacted to jmwellborn in Thank you for the new one-pica markings on rulers!!!!   
    Just updated v. 174 to the new v. 192.  Smooth as can be -- as usual.   Opened my first "Recent" Publisher document.    Mon Dieu!!!!    The pica rulers (which many of us use) have those beautiful 1 pica increments -- each with a 0p3, op6, and op9 marker that we have been hoping for.    No more squinting and guessing, trying to sneak through 2-pica increments.   Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!  The Affinity developers are the BEST.

    I don't see that comment but I do see your comment now that referenced inability to use SVG - sorry, I did miss that earlier while reading your responses.

    This has been on practically every thread where the beta can be downloaded:
     
    This was recently posted as well:
     
    Short version: they are trying to avoid it, but the possibility exists that the file format might change before the final release and documents from the current beta might not open in future versions of the beta or in the final release if they have a reason to break compatibility.

    Illustrator is really the wrong comparison for Affinity Publisher.
    If you are looking for something like Illustrator you should really be looking at Affinity Designer.
    Affinity Publisher is better compared with Adobe InDesign.

    fde101 got a reaction from appuser99 in How can I open Indesign (indd and idml) Files in Publisher?   
    INX was originally supposed to allow transfer of files between versions of InDesign but was not meant for use by outside software, so it was part way to what IDML has become, but only part way.
    The only version of InDesign that supports both INX and IDML is CS4, so you can use INX to transfer files among CS2, CS3, and CS4, and use IDML for CS4 and newer.

    I think we may have ruled it out of the "initial release" by which we mean the launch of 1.7.0. I don't think we have committed whether more than 2 page spreads will make it into the first version 1.x or a later release like 2 or 3, but I am sure that we will implement them.

    Rewriting features and replacing old ones (and pixels with percent) is confusing. It not great that he has to come here with questions and for work arounds (he has to remember) either.
     Why not name these methods and give users a choice, like in Capture Pro:
     
    Then you can even add presets or additional methods in later versions of Photo.

    fde101 got a reaction from Alfred in Still no sticky settings ?   
    Photo is more of a one-picture-at-a-time type of program.  Batch processing functionality in Photo is fitting, but when you start getting into interfaces that present a bunch of pictures and let you check them off a list, copy settings from one to another, and so on, you are going beyond simple batch processing in a one-picture-at-a-time application and getting firmly into DAM / photo organizer territory, whether that amounts to a simple browser like Bridge or a more complete solution such as Aperture offered.
     
    Actually, that is where it started...
     
    Assuming you mean ACR (Adobe Camera RAW), no, I don't think that.  ACR apparently includes a browser function I didn't even know it had because I never use it, but that does get into the territory of a photo browser/organizer which granted falls short of a DAM solution, but is still a different kind of application than what APh is.  ACR is a separate program from Photoshop, and functionality of that nature does not fit in with the Photoshop model any more than it does into the Affinity Photo model.  I'm not saying that offering such functionality is a bad thing, only that it doesn't belong in Photo.  It could be a separate browser tool that may or may not come bundled with Photo, just as Bridge and ACR are both separate tools that happen to come bundled with some of the other Adobe software (as in Photoshop), but it doesn't belong in Photo itself.
     
    Agreed in general.  I see the Develop persona in Photo as offering a nice way to get RAW files into the program if they were not being handled by a more appropriate tool, such as a DAM solution with RAW development or a separate RAW developer with a browser capability.  I currently use On1 Photo RAW to organize my photos and do basic development; I might eventually switch to using DXO PhotoLab or something else (I previously used Aperture), then when I need to make adjustments or perform edits that go beyond basic RAW development or which Photo RAW doesn't handle well I do an "export to application" to get it into Affinity Photo to take it from there.  If I am trying to make changes to things that go across photos, a RAW developer such as these is a much more appropriate place to do that.
    These are two different categories of programs: RAW developers/browsers/DAM solutions in their various combinations and formats (Aperture, Lightroom, On1 Photo RAW, PhotoLab, Capture One, etc.) for working across a spectrum of photos, and photo editors such as Affinity Photo and Photoshop for focusing in on one picture when you need to go beyond the scope of what the developers/organizers/DAM software can do.

    I would think something like that would be a better fit for the DAM solution we are told is in the future rather than in APh.

    I didn't realize the icon had changed. Just downloaded the new Beta and... wow that is ugly. I much prefer the old splash screen and icon. I have these in my dock all the time and that new one I would not want to have to look at all the time. I much prefer the old one, for the record. The old one was plain but not too plain.

    Color fonts when used sparingly in things like fliers and posters can work really well.

    OpenType is supported, but color fonts appear not to be (these are not the same thing)
     
    At this point they are not.  Hoping that changes sooner than later, particularly as they are starting to become a bit more readily available, but will see.

    fde101 got a reaction from hawk in Why are there TWO lock children buttons?   
    You mean the double-greater-than-sign thing?
    That shows up when there are too many things to fit on the context toolbar (window is too narrow) and allows access to options which didn't fit.
    You are not getting two "Lock Children" options.  The one that is "hidden" in that menu is the same one you pictured on the left, but displayed in the menu when other things push it so far to the right that there isn't room to display it normally.
    If you have a large enough display to make your window sufficiently wider it will turn back into a checkbox and once everything is displayed in the context toolbar the ">>" thing will disappear.
